Otago rugby teams have won a lot of first halves.
To the disappointment of fans they’ve not been as good at winning second halves.
When Robbie Deans was coaching Canterbury, it was very good at wining second halves, often in the final moments of a match.
Australia has always been good at doing that too, and did it again in last week’s semi final.
But not tonight, please Robbie.
For the sake of the nation’s blood pressure, tonight’s the night your team should play well but not too well and the All Blacks should win both halves.
